I prayed…


I prayed:
Give me Your eyes to see how people who are hurting and lost;
Give me Your ears to hear the cries of the poor and needy;
Give me Your hands to reach out to people who are perishing;
Give me Your heart to feel the compassion you have for mankind.

And He answered: I will if you…
Give me your heart so I may transform it;
Surrender your will to me so I may conform it to Mine;
Give me your mind so I would fill it with My plans for your life;
Give me your body so I may dwell in it.

Then I promised:
My heart is yours to fill, Father;
My mind is yours to control;
My body is yours to dwell in;
My will is yours to use, Lord.

Then He assured me:
My grace is sufficient for you to fulfill your purpose in this life;
In your weakness My strength will be revealed;
According to your faith, My power will be made manifest;
I will use you as a vessel for My glory.

Then I said:
Thank you for choosing to work through me. It is all I could ever live for.

  4. A lovely poem, Joseyphina. Prayer is so close to the heart of God that our conversations open us up to his will, assurances, and promises. Thank you for sharing the give and take of our prayer lives. Have a wonderful day.
